Description

President Bush is expected to nominate the chief lobbyist for the National Association of Manufacturers, Michael Baroody, to chair the Consumer Product Safety Commission. The CPSC has left semi-neutered status, opting for the full procedure. ConsumerAffairs.com writes: "Because of Baroody's Republican ties and history of opposing strong safety regulation, his appointment is unlikely to be popular with the Democratic-controlled Congress." The President plans to install Baroody over President's Day weekend as a recess appointment. The recess appointment, which is usually reserved at the end of a session or during the Senate's summer recess, will be effective until the adjournment of the 110th Congress in 2008. After that, if the Senate doesn't confirm the nominee, the position again becomes vacant.
